|The Bilobed flap was first described by Esser in 1918. He used it to reconstruct the defects of the nose. It has been used in the reconstructions of trunk and feet defects by many authors since then. Its principle is also advantageous in reconstructions of larger facial defects. Successful reconstruction of problematic suborbital area by using the bilobed flap was reported by Yenidunya in 2007. The design of flap can be successfully used in other atypical facial defects.
